The Real John Tory (mayor of Toronto)
I am forced to take cabs all the time here in Toronto because public transit, which, like everything publicly funded, is being sabotaged so that it can eventually be privatized. It's awful. And it's awful for other reasons as well. Bombardier, whose CEO is happy to dispense with rules and build transit for nazi Israel that goes through occupied Palestinian territory, provides the streetcars for the city here. The new ones are AWFUL. And the politicians, like John Tory, who signed off on those are professional scam artists. They are too big. It's freaking Monty Pythonesque! When they exist one station that I'm at all the time, if there's even one car in the lane in front of the streetcar, the streetcar is so long that it can't make it all of the way out of the station. It ends up blocking 'both' lanes of traffic on the side street it exits from the station onto. There's no pull cord inside the streetcar, and you can't move around because, possibly as a selling point, they built these new cars with double seats on both sides of the aisle. They were able to tell the uncaring politicians that they can seat x amount of passengers instead of something far less, but no one can get around in the car! And the seating is GO train style, where you are forced to stare at strangers whose knees are touching yours! The old streetcars were much more user-friendly. And despite the huge windows on the new streetcars, visibility from within them is reduced due to the bulky panelling inside. And the city still allows TTC, which doesn't receive adequate funding from various levels of government, the norm everywhere else, to allow advertizing, including full and partial vehicle wraps that obscure, further, passengers' vision. It's one thing to not give the people anything extra but another, less than acceptable, thing to give them that one additional kick in the head. If it's dark, the weather is inclement and the streetcar is full (a common occurrence when there aren't, by design, enough TTC vehicles on the road) and you're on the way to a location that is new to you, and someone's given you sign posts to watch for, Good luck! If you went to a restaurant and asked for plain spaghetti, you'd expect noodles with tomato sauce at a minimum and would be pleased to be offered parmesan and ground pepper. But if the waiter brought you a plate of noodles and no sauce, let alone extras like parmesan cheese, you'd be getting 'less' than the minimum. That's our TTC, where they obsess over schedules - a "Look! Over there!" ploy - but simply don't have enough vehicles on the road. As for weekend service, It's astonishingly bad. Why?
So, I already hate John Tory and the other professional scam artists at city hall. I make $15 per hour and that's after working full time, permanent in security since 1999. Bosses don't give a damn and politicians are right there defending them. I can't afford to pay for expensive public transit 'and' taxis, and yet I have no choice. And, regarding taxis, I've had many conversations with cabbies about Toronto. I explain that I have never met anyone who was a customer of Rogers who didn't absolutely hate the company. Where did scammer John Tory come from? He was the former CEO of Rogers. Why did Torontonians elect him? They don't care. And they don't know. Knowing is caring, ergo... Also, the business community wanted John Tory as mayor of Canada's biggest city and therefore he became our mayor and people let that happen. Of course, We don't really have choices in our captured electoral systems. But if we did, then the propaganda system, which corporate media and the Canadian educational system is a part of, would have also made even good people so stupid that getting democracy through elections is all but impossible.
Yes, There are more important things to worry and complain about. I am very busy reporting on those all the time on my blog.
Fixing all of that disfunction and evil (which will require destroying this entire Godless system of things) will take a higher power.
I highly recommend Dimitri Lascaris's blog. I am still a fan of Dimitri but I think he should sever his ties with the Green Party of Canada and exit the establishment Real News Network. I am ambivalent about that. While they are still willing to let him report what he reports, that good, Right? Then again, How long will it be before Dimitri is reporting alongside an even more rightwing Real News stafff without finding that that hurts his brand?
